Broccoli Tree recipe
This is one of my popular Christmas recipes. Already more than 50 people photo reported me and said it turned out great!
Because I don’t have any Christmas tree at home, I created my tree using broccoli. It truly gives you the Christmas spirit 😉
Broccoli is known to contain anti-cancer compound called sulforaphane. However, the benefits are considerably reduced if the broccoli is overcooked. To ensure maximum nutrition and cancer-fighting power of broccoli, the best way to prepare is to boil or steam it lightly about 3 minutes until the broccoli is tough-tender.
Number of servings: 4
1 bunch of broccoli
1 tsp. salt
your favorite dressing
1. Carefully wash broccoli and remove all traces of dirt. Cut and trim florets into pieces. Cook broccoli florets in a large pot of boiling salted water for 3 minutes, until bright green and tender-crisp. Drain in a colander and cool down. The salted water will bring out the color and flavor in the broccoli! You can also steam them (without salt).
2. Pile the broccoli florets (stem-side in) on a plate and mold with hands. Cut out process cheese with a 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter. Attach a toothpick and place it on the top of the tree.
3. Decorate the tree with mayonnaise and pour your favorite dressing over the tree!
You can add grape tomatoes as ornaments 🙂
